Wall Flower

I was inspired by the Poinsettia pillows that Centsational Girl made here.  I don't have many throw pillows but I really liked the idea.  So, I modified her tutorial into a wall hanging.  I didn't take any pictures along the way, but I can give you a basic idea of what I changed.  I started with a white felt circle in an embroidery hoop.  I hand sewed the petals on, but I didn't sew them down the center like she did, because I was afraid that they wouldn't lay against the wall well enough. 

Also, I didn't have a covered button, so I just sewed a felt circle in the middle.  I still like CG's better so I may have to do a throw pillow after all, but I do like the alternative version enough to keep it hanging even after Christmas!  Hope you like it :)


PS-I'm posting this on Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage and on Strut Your Stuff Thursday at Somewhat Simple.

Very crafty! Great idea for a feathery, light wall poinsettia!
